Systems Fail by Hiromi Goto and N.K. Jemisin
I'm pleased to announce the release of another book launched at WisCon, Systems Fail, by Hiroi Goto and N.K. Jemisin. This is a numbered, limited edition celebrating the work of WisCon 38's Guest of Honor, in Aqueduct's WisCon GoH series. The volume includes two pieces of Goto’s short fiction, N.K. Jemisin’s Nebula Award-nominated story “Non-Zero Probabilities,” and a selection of Jemisin’s essays as well as her 2013 Continuum IX Guest of Honor speech. In addition, the authors talk at length with interviewers knowledgeable about their work: Goto with writer and editor Nisi Shawl, and Jemisin with critic and scholar Karen Burnham.
Here's the Table of Contents:
1. The Sleep Clinic for Troubled Souls (Hiromi Goto)
